I am a CrossFit Woman

I am a CrossFit Woman
I do not wear makeup
I do not wear gloves
I do not do my hair
I do not ‘glisten’ or ‘glow’

I am a CrossFit Woman
I sweat
I grunt
I curse
I bleed

I am a CrossFit Woman
I will not shy away from failure
I will not hide my emotions
I will not quit
I will not hold back


Today's work felt good, but now ready for some recovery. I still cannot believe that I thumb ripped from those cleans yesterday! New knurling. deep, errrg! Plus after weighing the bar, I was heavy by almost 10 lbs on my weight, which is the good news!

Early swim of a few relays with the kids. I was feeling yesterdays cleans or was it squats or maybe a little of both. Good feeling though not feeling too sore as I am re-entering my flow. Post work today ... enjoying the Olympic opening ceremony but I am ready for a good night of sleep.

Nutrition Note: Gut feeling a little swollen, not sure what fired me up earlier in the day. I was hungry pre-workout but the thought of food in my stomach while being upside down was not appealing. Home a little late, so lighter meal of turkey over herb salad and beets w/some left over sweet potato. Let's see how that settles.
